looking at one of the central figures for the
For me, this was probably the first card I got that
instantly said “Build a deck around me!”. For a cost
2 and threshold 2 you get an amazingly powerful
ability (undoubtedly some will call it “broken”)
which breaks down as this:
During your turn, deplete him, pay 5 and take any
non-tactic card from your opponents discard pile and
PUT IT INTO PLAY UNDER YOUR CONTROL. Can I get a “Booya!”?
Not in your hand, directly into play.
The only thing you have to watch out for are cards
that have a cost that effects the card in some way.
Since you’re not paying the cost you won’t get that
effect. For example, Thief Doyen has the additional
cost of discarding a character or item to determine
his strength and life. Without paying that cost, his
stats stay as printed on the card 0/0/3. And
whenever a character’s life = 0, he’s dead. On the
other hand, cards that have the effect “when this
card comes into play…” still work just fine.
I’ve already spoken about Rogues and their sub-theme
of discard, but check out this combo: Heist Planner
+ Pluck. Heist Planner allows to you search your
opponents deck for 3 different cards and instructs
you to put them in his discard pile. You see what
I’m getting at here don’t you?
Even in sealed Open Beta tournaments, if you get
Pluck, you’re at least splashing Deception. Even if
you have no significant discard ability, you’ll be
biding your time for the mid-to-late game. As soon
as targets start mounting in your opponents discard
pile, Pluck is ready to begin grifting!
Pluck is crazy goodness on a silver platter. I’m
sure we’ll be hearing a lot about Pluck decks as
soon as the full release is out in November.
Wow. Pluck is expensive and can only be used on your
turn, but sometimes his Grift ability just may be
worth it. Think of all of the cards you can put
directly into the discard pile from Rogue effects
like Pillaging Pirate, Defenestrate, Card Counter or
Tremor Engine. Load up your opponent’s discard pile
with cards, then go to town playing the ones that
best work for you! Talk about some Deception going
on! Even better, lay down a Heist Planner, look for
the three best cards (i.e., most expensive) to stack
in your opponent’s discard, then go to town with
I don’t think Pluck is as good in limited as in
constructed (due to the nature of his combo-riffic
ability), but he still has his uses. Instead of
using those resources to draw your own cards, use
‘em instead to bring back characters you’ve already
taken out, except now they’re on your side.
Today we are
reviewing my favorite card in the game, Pluck. Can
you beleive this is the first RARE I ever pulled at
my first event? I had no idea what was good, had not
seen a spoiler yet, and then it hit me in the
face...... wow this guy is really cool. Ive been a
Rogue player since my first pack lol.
To be frank this card is fantastic, I run two of
them, and beleive me they are a big part of my deck,
I run 4 Hiest Planner, 4 Defencestrate, Pirates,
Scrags.... arcanist discard...... basically anything
to get a nice fat grave going, then I just res your
biggest baddest guy and run you over with it. NOW
thats what I call fun.
Pluck only cost 2 so youll be able to get him on the
field with no problem at all, and for the same cost
as a catastrophic betrayal you can start using your
opponents cards against them. I love stealing my
enemies Jaques Traps, and setting up mad protection,
or Ashes of Zenobia anyone? How about a couple of
Dragon Tanks? Ive even taken my opponents Pluck,
with catastrophic betrayal and then used his ability
3 turns in a row lol.
Yeah Pluck is the man.
1. Low cost.
2. Low threshold.
3. Gamebreaking effect.
4. Even if you dont have enough for his effect hes
still a cheap drop.
5. Hes a pimp, just look at him..... LOOK AT HIM!
1. His stats are not very impressive.
2. I wish his effect cost 4 lol.
3. Hes a unique so your only gonna be able to drop
Draft: 4.5 / 5
Sealed 4 / 5 ( he won me my first)
Constructed 6 / 5. lol Hes my fave I had to.
